Chicago Artist Henny B Talks about the Message in her Music with @AGirlsHipHop


 Chicago breed emcee by way of Brooklyn, Henny B, combines the best of both cities with a smooth velvety voice and a no nonsense approach that echoes her message.

"I've been through hell and so has everyone else, I want people to I want people to feel good and vibe to my music while still hearing something real says Henny B when asked about her message to fans in her music.

In the Q&A below Henny B speaks on her hip-hop journey and her music with AGirlandHerHipHop.com.

AGHHH:  Introduce yourself to our readers.
HB:  Henny B also know as Henny F and many other alias'.  Born in Brooklyn, raised in Chicago by Dominican and Puerto Rican parents with a Hip Hop and city life influence.  I am an artist. 

AGHHH: Hailing from Chicago, who are your influences from the city?

HB:  Throughout my career I've had several influences.  Before I even rapped, Shawna, Twista, Do or Die, Crucial Conflict, etc. inspired me a lot because it showed me people in my city making a mark in the Hip Hop community.  When I started recording my raps, my associates were my influences.  Vic Spencer, Angel Davanport, Brian Fresco, and a few others.  Over the past few years my taste in music has changed and I have evolved into a different brain, King L, Queen Key, CassoBandz, Katie Got Bandz, Big Body Fiji, Lucki, John Walt and Pivot...there are just too many good artists in Chicago.

AGHHH: One word to describe your flow.

HB: Velvety.

AGHHH: How many EP's do you have under your belt so far?

HB: One EP so far called "Breathe Again" produced entirely by King Mikey of Virginia.  I recorded this EP alone in my closet on my laptop.  It's my baby.

AGHHH: I just heard the track "Spitta Taught Me," describe the inspiration behind the track?

HB: The title is a subliminal.  It also refers to always being called the "female Curren$y".  I get compared lyrically to him and Roc Marciano a lot.  The beat is a Curren$y loop.  Something that day triggered me to kill that beat so after my pills kicked in I went to the studio and literally cried my verses out.  I was sad that day. 

AGHHH: Do you have a new EP in the works?

HB:  Yes.  I just decided the title is going to be "wasted fuckin summer".  King Mikey is now known as Rage Aurelius and he has already produced two tracks on it.   I am excited for this project  because I feel that it's the first time I am not filtering myself as far as lyrics, content, and imagery.  I have finally lost that fear of judgement and am making this project with all of my soul and no apologies.  I'm saying what I want.  

AGHHH: At what moment did you know that rapping was something you wanted others to know you did?

HB: I always wrote poetry since I was a kid.  In school, they make you read that shit aloud.  People loved my voice.  I could articulate but still sound like myself.  My voice always had a velvety tone to it.  I always read chapters aloud in class.  I found out I could sing in church.  I participated in church choirs and in my high school choir.  I didn't record for the first time until I was nineteen years old.  Lord knows where that track is.    

AGHHH: Who are some of your producers?

HB: Currently Rage Aurelius from Virginia, Na$im Williams of Chicago, and Jonathan Cloud from the East Coast.  

AGHHH: What's the process for making a track?

HB:  It isn't always the same for me.  If the mood is right, I can just go to the studio and make a song on the spot especially if the beat is crazy.  When I'm working alone I like to stimulate my mind somehow, get on the same wave as the beat and just write.  I like to have my material ready so that when I go in that studio I don't waste time.  I'm not paying my hard earned money to smoke the engineer out.  I write everywhere and I prepare, then I hit the studio very organized and professional and work.  I play at home.   

AGHHH: What message do you want listeners to get from listening to your music?

HB:  I just want to release my energy to my listeners, I want them to relate to me.  I've been through hell and so has everyone else, I want people to feel good and vibe to my music while still hearing something real.


AGHHH: Anything else to add?  

HB: "wasted fuckin summer" is the next project coming from me.  Be looking out and thank you!
